There are so many ideas for Christmas cupcakes that it is difficult to know where to start.
You can make
cupcakes. I would suggest vanilla if you are using
frosting and fruit cake if you intend to use
Fruit cakes can be made and iced with fondant well ahead of time, however, a vanilla cupcake is best made and eaten immediately. If you enjoy fruit cakes, but want an easier recipe to follow, click on my boiled fruit cupcakes for a quick alternative.
Although fruit mince pies are yummy, making pastry can be quite time consuming. Fruit mince cupcakes are an ideal alternative. Frost with brandy buttercream for an easier and quicker alternative. Your guests will be asking for the recipe!
Another cupcake recipe that is fantastic teamed up with brandy buttercream is my recipe for Christmas spice cupcakes. The blend of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, golden syrup and fruit mince (or mincemeat) is just perfect.
I use a variety of colors, but mainly red, white and green when decorating for the holiday season.
Reindeer cupcakes look great and are very easy to make -just follow these simple directions
Holly cupcakes are brightly colored and are sure to be a favorite with the children. There are lots of gorgeous cupcake liners for sale so you can have some fun matching decorations to the liners.
Another cupcake recipe that is good for this time of the year is a
cupcake. It is, as the name suggests, red in color and looks great with white frosting.
My ideas for decorating Xmas cupcakes work well with any cake and any type of frosting. They are all mix-and-match.
